Aimless- less is more.
The concept will keep you watching. The delivery will leave you wanting.
NOTE: always watch these in the original language. It's just better and doesn't make the acting seem awful.
The show seemed to have a hard time locking down what part of the story it wanted to focus in on: the family ties? Love in general? The test subjects experience? The love story of the CEO? The office drama? The competitive drama?
I felt lost watching. I kept wondering, "So how are they going to tie this back in?" Turns out, they didn't, or they did it in the least impactful way.
The first episodes are usual information vomiting- this was no different.
The overall show had Black Mirror vibes running through it, but it lacked a central theme and depth. This led to it being lackluster.
The final episode wasn't satisfying and really missed an opportunity to explore some amazing storylines- however, we already had too many to focus on.
Stick to black mirror, sense 8, or OA. I hear the new twilight zone will be good.
